SBK 2022. Toprak Razgatlioglu is truly unique: but what a motocross or flat track! MMA! [VIDEO]
In the SBK mid-championship break, the Turkish rider trained hard in a session with coach Uyar

THEthe Superbike championship is very open, Alvaro Bautista has 298 points with seven wins, Jonathan Rea has 267 with 5 victories and Toprak Razgatlioglu he has 260 with 6 victories, we are precisely in the middle of the championship.
The possibility of the Turkish move to MotoGP in 2023 seems to have vanished: Yamaha has Quartararo (until 2024) and Morbidelli (2023) under contract and will not have a satellite team next year (which Toprak did not want to go there).
So even in 2024 Superbike fans will be able to enjoy Turkish on the Yamaha. In the meantime, however, during the break of almost a month and a half (from 31 July to 9 September) Toprak found a way to train singularly: that is, by practicing mixed martial arts, MMA.
THEn a video posted on Instagram here is Toprak who trains with the trainer Abdullah Mücahit Uyar. A hard session, first on a mannequin and then head to head with the coach.
MMA is a full contact combat sport. The regulation allows the use of all sports techniques of martial arts, such as karate or judo and of combat sports such as wrestling, boxing or kickboxing.
To confirm the fact that it was a real and hard workout is the last scene of the video: the sweat-soaked shirts!
